I'm feeling the same way. I had my doubts about her initially, but the more I think about, the more I like the idea of her playing Sharon Carter. I'd still prefer Winstead(who's sadly probably no longer in the running), but Palmer is now my second choice for the role. She's really come a long way as an actress and we know she can handle action scenes in a believable way. I have a friend who has seen a test screening of Warm Bodies, and he said she was great in it. He had a lot of praise for both her and for the film... said that it basically gets right everything that Twilight got wrong(along with a good deal of making fun of films like Twilight).
Also, she looks incredibly sexy when holding a firearm. Not everyone can pull that off.
